Why? Well, Bookout's age has a lot do to with it. When she first fell pregnant with her son, Bentley, whom she shares with her ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards, she was not ready to be a mom. In fact, she was terrified.

"It's been nice to be able to enjoy it," she added.

Seven years on and Bookout has embraced the fact that she is going to be a mom for the second time (her new arrival is expected in June) with longtime boyfriend, Taylor McKinney. And luckily for her, it's been smooth sailing.

"As far as the pregnancy itself, it's been very similar," she confessed. "I've been blessed with two very easy pregnancies thank goodness and not too bad of symptoms."

The reality TV star is well-prepared for the birth of her daughter, and she has already decided on a name, one that is beautiful and unique.

"It's Jayde and her middle name is Carter," she admitted of her future daughter's name. "No more changes. We finally agree and really feel like this is the perfect fit."
